    Default Rear engine oil leak?????

    Hi all,

    I having warranty work done to my car before it runs out. So far the front n/s steering ball joint has been replaced. The rear suspension arms are going to be replaced. Worst thing is tho told them there was an oil leak and they have diagnosed it as a rear oil seal and the engine has to come out, gearbox and clutch removed. Up to two days work. Anyone have any ideas what the seal could be and would oil be getting on the clutch and therefore they should replace it. If they are taking the clutch out would it be a good practice to replace it while it is out?

    Hi mate,
    When my Signum went in for a dual mass flywheel replacement (same engine as yours..), they also said that the 'rear main oil seal' was leaking and needed replacement, so they did it at the same time as the 'box was off, they didn't remove the engine though as far as i know.
    They replaced my clutch with the flywheel, which wasn't caused by the oil leak.....
    Dave.
